Asbury Park NJ’s secret bloody mary capital.
Asbury Park NJ has always been one of my favorite places. Growing up as a little girl I spent many summers on the beaches and boardwalk there and as a Bruce Springsteen superfan, I have spent many an adult night at the Stone Pony waiting for Bruce to show up one night to play a surprise gig
What most people don’t know is that Asbury Park’s food scene is one of the most outstanding in the state of NJ. It’s because of this that I learned that it’s also the leader in the best bloody mary cocktails that you can find in the state of NJ.
Here’s a list of my favorite places in Asbury Park to chill out and grab a bloody mary that you will remember as one of the best.

Here you can soak up the history and sip on a fabulously seasoned bloody mary that’s garnished with the freshest of seafood. The Bonney Read tops my list of the restaurants in Asbury Park that’ truly stepped up the game on the classic bloody mary cocktail.
